Let There Be Stars
Let There Be Stars was an early television series which aired on the ABC television network in 1949. It was a high-budget show for its time, and used new production techniques such as "Teleparencies", transparencies which could be displayed in the background, faded in or out or dissolved, and changed on the fly.
The first program got a rave review from Variety magazine, but quality dropped off, and the show only lasted a little more than a month, from October 16, 1949 through November 27.
